Broke Haridwar Couple Sues Son, Demand ₹5 Cr Compensation Or A Grandchild, Twitter Divided

Have you watched the film ‘Baghban’? It was a reminder of how when many kids grow up to become independent, self-sustaining adults, they forget about their parents and their well-being. You will find innumerable cases of children abandoning their parents in their old age.

However, one couple from Haridwar decided to move court against their son demanding either a grandchild or Rs 5 crore compensation.

According to Times Now, the parents claimed that they invested a huge amount in their son’s education. They also took a loan to build a home, which has now left them broke. They revealed that their son got married in 2016. Now, they either want a grandchild within a year or Rs 2.5 crore each from their son and daughter-in-law as compensation.

“I gave my son all my money, got him trained in America. I don’t have any money now. We have taken a loan from bank to build home. We’re troubled financially and personally. We have demanded Rs 2.5 crore each from both my son and daughter-in-law in our petition,” the father, SR Prasad claimed.

Advocate AK Srivastava who is representing the parents said that children owe their parents basic financial care.

“We invest in our children, make them capable of working in good firms. Children owe their parents basic financial care. The parents have demanded either a grandchild within a year or compensation of Rs 5 crores.”
